Hey,

A good friend of mine has a 2000 Sable LS, fully loaded, black, pretty slick ride.

Anyway, I went to visit her last week and we get into the car and put some new CDs in the magazine, stick it in, display shows CDE1 and then cuts back out to FM radio. Any subsequent pressing of the CD button results in "NO CD" errors. This figures that it happens right when I'm there; she bought the car after I gave her a positive review of mine. So I feel kind of like a jackass, because the thing pretty much falls apart after she takes delivery of it.

The Ford dealer wants $300 US to fix the changer. You heard me right. Not replace. Fix. The. Same. One. WTF?

I was wondering if anyone had the same problems with theirs, as I know the factory changers are severe PITAs. Any common issues that would likely result in this error?

Alex

hey ... i actually don't have a ford ... i have a honda ... but i was having the same issue with my 6 disk changer : not playing, and showing CDE-1 on the display ...

i was able to fix it by removing the top cover of the changer (just 4 little screws) and breaking up some hardened lubricant around one of the gears ... it's been really hot here (in memphis ... 100+ degrees for the past week and a half) lately and i think what happened was the grease that lubricated the gear that rotates and pulls the disk trays into the "player side" of the changer had dried up in the heat and turned brittle, almost like plastic solder ... there was a large (3 or 4 inch diameter) gear right over where the cd laser track is ... it rotates CW and swings a thin metal arm that in turn pulls a little hook to the right (the hook that actually pulls the cd-containing tray over into the player side) ... i turned it back and forth manually a few times after breaking up the dried lubricant, popped it back into the trunk and it worked like new!

it'll probably be a good idea to go and get some more lubricant of some kind from radio shack or something and lube that gear back up ... but in the meantime, it's working fine ...

i'm sure there are other reasons for that particular error to occur, but i hope this helps someone ... it was a pain trying to find an answer to that cde-1 error ...

Have you tried taking it apart and performing service on the changer itself? Tried manually ejecting the magazine?

The changer in my wife's '02 SEL is doing the same thing. A CD is in the magazine and when hitting the EJECT button, the magazine whirs as if it is attempting to eject the CD, but then it quits. The magazine is mounted in the console and I cannot remove teh palstic collar which hold the magazine in place without breaking it. i'm sure there is a a way, but I can't get to it to disassemble the changer.

Any thoughts?

I get CDE1 anytime I disconnect the battery with the magazine still in the changer. I have to disassemble the changer and manually remove the CD. I also can't use slots 5 or 6 without jamming up the changer, but that may be an issue with my magazine.

I've disassembled and reassembled my changer at least 6 times...

If you take the changer out the console ---> (good instructions) http://mypage.siu.edu/bskouby/x3/x3.html

You should then be able to take apart the changer and and manually eject the magazine like silvapain said.

Might also be time for servicing the changer if you can't use certain slots. Check here for the instructions: http://www.v8sho.com/SHO/CDPlayerNoDiscFix.htm
